Melbourne Demons vs Collingwood Magpies Preview
Monday Night Football returns this week with an intriguing battle between the Dees and the Pies from the SCG.
Warning signs were going off at the heart of Demonland last week following a disastrous first half against the Lions, but the way Simon Goodwin’s side responded in the final term reminded everybody why Melbourne is the real deal this year.
The Pies, on the other hand, picked up a hard-fought win over the Crows, but whatever faint finals pulse they still have looks likely to come to an end this week against the flag favourites.
Collingwood certainly has the talent to keep this game competitive on neutral turf, but it’s hard to ignore the fact the Dees won by 56 points when these two sides met last year.
It’s also tough to look past Melbourne’s incredible bill of health, something that can’t be said for Collingwood as they prepare for another game without Brodie Grundy.
The Pies currently rank second-last in average goals and that really doesn’t bode well against a Demons side that carved up a very good Brisbane defence in the second half last week.
With an equally impressive 9-3 record at the line this year, the Dees should be winning this comfortably.
